The Ondo State Deputy Governor, Hon Agboola Ajayi has alleged that his security details have been withdrawn by the Nigeria Police.
In a Statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Babatope Okeowo, the deputy governor said there was a surreptitious move to undermine his security.
“The Ondo State Deputy Governor, His Excellency, Agboola Ajayi wishes to raise alarm over the withdrawal of his police escort on the order of the Commissioner of Police, Mr Bolaji Salami putting his life, family and staff in danger.
“This is the same Commissioner of Police that took the Deputy Governor hostage on Saturday 21st of June, 2020 for more than four hours at the Government House gate despite the fact that he enjoys immunity under the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We are not oblivious of their surreptitious move to undermine the security of the Deputy Governor and strip him of his security apparatus to make him venerable in order to carry out their evil agenda.
“The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, and the Director General of State Security Service, Yusuf Magaji Bichi should be aware of this latest ugly development in Ondo State.
“Should anything happen to the Deputy Governor, his family and staff, the Commissioner of Police in Ondo State should be held responsible.”
Reacting in a telephone interview, the State Police Spokesman, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, denied the allegation by the Deputy Governor, describing such insinuation as a lie.
Ikoro added that his security details was still intact.
